No defence for our defence....

I feel we need to now acquire some world class defenders and finally get a settled back four. It feels like we have been using a make shift defence for years now. We have two wingers as full backs, Smalling and Jones not good enough IMO. Lindy looks like he could take a while to settle; if he ever does. Bailey looks to be attracted go the United physios and prone to injury.

As of this minute, I can only see Shaw and Bailey as genuine class. Opinions?





Our attack is in place now and we have match winners who can win us games.

I'd really like to see the loanees return. tuanzebe and fosu-mensah didn't really put a foot wrong in the limited experience of the first team they got.

I can appreciate a need to plug a gap with real quality as soon as possible but the assumption was that we bought lindelof to do that. if we have to wait for him to, maybe, come good, what's wrong with letting two players who've grown up with the club get the same chances?

I agree. I think Fosu-Brains is an excellent prospect. Heard very good things from Palace about his performances.

I see City have signed Laporte. Finally addressing their poor defence. We need to act now and keep up. Hopefully Pep fucks off soon, they're a worry with unlimited money and a good manager.

We don't take many risks with our defense in the way we're set up, so how can we expect players to improve or build up their confidence. Playing a more attacking style would leave our defenders more exposed but it would also force them to get better and take more responsibility. It wouldn't take long to work out who was good and who wasn't.

60-70 million for a decent defender these days. I’d be happy with muddling along if it means we’re brining Tuanzebe and Fosu through starting next season. There’s not many fullbacks out there that are obviously better than Valencia, Young, and Shaw.
